2014 is going to be an exciting year for the membership of the Northern California Professional Photographers. We are moving our meetings to the Concord Hilton on Diamond Boulevard just off of Willow Pass in Concord where we are being received with warm fuzzies and a reduced rate.
Our meeting format is changing. It’s new to us, but long established in the Southern California PPC and PPA affiliates. We will have General Meetings with a speaker and General Meetings that are Image Competition Nights. We hope to have a bit more time for socializing and an earlier evening for all. Image Competition Nights are coordinated to be prior to PPC, Western States, and PPA International Competitions to allow us to run new images up the flag pole and make any changes we might want before sending them off to the big time.
In addition, we will be having an Image Critique Night about 2–3 weeks before our Image Competitions. With judges, critique and no scores all will have a chance to have their images reviewed in a supportive and educational environment, before braving the competitive arena.
And, for those who are ready to progress in their professional world NCPP is supporting your efforts with a Study Group for the PPA Certified Professional Photographer exam and image reveiw. The first meeting will be on 23 January at the Walnut Creek Library. We’ll get your organized and on your way with the process.
It’s going to be a full and exciting year.
